Sometimes it is required to trigger the process chains on alternate weeks of a year.

How to achieve

* *Suppose we have to trigger Process Chain on very even Week (2, 4, 6 etc.).

Create an Event and assign it to the Process Chain which needs to be triggered on every even week.

Create another process chain with ABAP Process Type. Put the below code in a Program.

                       DATE              = sy-datum
_                    _IMPORTING
                      WEEK               = v_datum    “ type YYYYWW
*                    EXCEPTIONS
*                      DATE_INVALID       = 1
*                      OTHERS             = 2


v_week = v_datum+4(2).

v_value = v_week MOD 2.

If v_value EQ 0.

    eventid = 'ZTEST_EVENT'
        bad_eventid = 1
        eventid_does_not_exist = 2
        eventid_missing = 3
        raise_failed = 4
        OTHERS = 5.


The FM ‘DATE_GET_WEEK’ in the above program takes the system date and converts it into week Year/Week form YYYYWW. The week will be calculated and then it checks if week is even or odd. If even it will call the FM ‘BP_EVENT_RAISE’ which will trigger the event. This event will be assign in the process chain which we want to trigger every even week.
